Happy Birthday Dad

Today is my dad's 70th birthday.

On Thursday afternoon we had a surprise party for him. He came to the store to see me and Jane was working with me. He was confused and we made up a story. He then went to his office and they didn't really want him there. Beth called him to come to the warehouse to work. An hour later the office called him that they needed him back because someone was there to see him. He started getting mad. What was going on. Then he got back to the office and we were all waiting for him. He was totally shocked.

This is my dad in Honduras-he goes every year on a mission trip. He loves the children. Two suitcases go with him and one is always filled with candies, paper, pens, crayons, stickers and anything that kids would want from the dollar store.

Some of you will have met my dad in the store (he is always asking if someone will make him hand knit socks) or at the tent sale or at knitting shows.

Hope you are having a great day dad!!
